Book Review: The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel

Roanoke girls never last long around here. In the end, we either run or we die.

After her mother's suicide, fifteen year-old Lane Roanoke came to live with her grandparents and fireball cousin, Allegra, on their vast estate in rural Kansas. Lane knew little of her mother's mysterious family, but she quickly embraced life as one of the rich and beautiful Roanoke girls. But when she discovered the dark truth at the heart of the family, she ran fast and far away. 

Eleven years later, Lane is adrift in Los Angeles when her grandfather calls to tell her Allegra has gone missing. Did she run too? Or something worse? Unable to resist his pleas, Lane returns to help search, and to ease her guilt at having left Allegra behind. Her homecoming may mean a second chance with the boyfriend whose heart she broke that long ago summer. But it also means facing the devastating secret that made her flee, one she may not be strong enough to run from again.

Tips For Holidaying With Cats || Guest Post

Cat owners have a massive dilemma when considering the prospect of going on holiday. When you have a cat to take care of, it can be difficult to decide whether or not you want to even go. For those of us who have a strong connection with our cat (a possibility despite what some dog lovers might say), it is probably best for our happiness, as well as our furry friend’s, to take the cat with us. This could be to a country cottage nearby, or even to another country.

If this seems too overwhelming, it does not have to be. There are now specialist companies that offer services to transport pets abroad at reasonable prices. This takes the responsibility out of doing all the organization yourself. After all, it is supposed to be a holiday!

Blog Tour Stop - Across Great Divides by Monique Roy

By Monique Roy
On November 9, 1938, an orchestrated whirlwind of destruction was unleashed on the Jews of Germany. From the streets of Berlin to the smallest towns of Germany and Austria, more than a thousand synagogues were set on fire and destroyed. Tens of thousands of Jewish shops and homes were ransacked and Jewish books were burnt to ash. In 24-hours of violence, 91 Jews were killed and more than 30,000 Jewish men and boys were sent to concentration camps. With shattered glass covering the streets of Germany, the Nazi pogrom became known as Kristallnacht: the Night of the Broken Glass. The event was the turning point toward the murder of six million Jews in the Holocaust.

Let's Talk Weddings: Say Cheese!

Image from Pexels

Not enough has happened since the last wedding update post, if I'm honest. We really need to create the final draft of our guest list for daytime and evening guests; order save the date cards, and other wedding stationery; and perhaps most crucially, find THE DRESS! Yep, you heard it right; I still don't have my dress yet. If I'm honest, I'd feel so much more comfortable getting married in my pyjamas (or maybe jeans and a tee-shirt) but my fiance says that's not an option. Not now he's put the deposit down on the suits!

Book Review: Baby Doll by Hollie Overton

She kept moving forward. She didn't stop. She didn't look back.

Lily has been abducted from outside her high-school gates. For eight long years she's been locked away from the outside world. During that time she's changed from a girl into a woman. She's had a baby. And now she has seized her chance and escaped. Running for her life, with her daughter in her arms, she returns to her family and the life she used to know - to her much-loved twin sister Abby, her mum, her high-school boyfriend - and her freedom.

But is it possible to go back? 

Lily's perfect life as a teenager doesn't exist any more. Since she's been gone, her family's lives have changed too, in ways she never could have imagined. Her return, and the revelation of who took her, will send shockwaves through the whole community.

Haul Post (Part Two!)

In my last haul post, I explained that I'd been splashing the cash, perhaps, a little bit too much recently. So I split my latest haul post into two parts, and today I bring you Part Two!

New Look are fast becoming my favourite store, guys. First, they released all kinds of cute unicorn homeware (for examples, see this haul post) and now they've released the BEST tee-shirts! And they're only £7!

I think this design is my favourite, although I'm a little in love with both of them! It's true guys; cats really are forever!
